Temporary Employees and Company Culture


It’s no secret that hiring for company culture is the key to lasting success. Research from the New Century Financial Corporation revealed that companies with happy employees outperform their competition by 20 percent, have 1.2 percent to 1.7 percent higher revenues and operate 2.1 percent above industry benchmarks.

When it comes to hiring temporary staffers, there’s a slight gray area. Many companies mistakenly believe people don’t need to be a great cultural fit if they’re only going to be with the company for a short period of time, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. It doesn’t matter if a person is working for your company for 10 days or 10 years, it’s equally important that they’re aligned with the beliefs and behaviors that make your organization unique.

3 Reasons to Always Hire a Great Cultural Fit

Learn three reasons why it’s always important to hire temporary workers who truly sync with your company:

  1. Your Reputation is at Stake: Temporary employees are only with your company for a short time, but their mark can be lasting. The quality of the work produced by these professionals directly reflects on your organization. If you hire a temporary worker with a bad attitude, or someone who just don’t get your mission, they have the power to drive business away for good.
  2. Engagement Impacts Productivity: Every single person on your team needs to be actively engaged for your company to achieve maximum efficiency. All it takes is one glitch in the cycle to throw everything off. Temporary employees are hired to lend an extra hand to your company, but if you choose the wrong person, they’ll actually slow things down.
  3. One Person Can Ruin the Office Vibe: Your permanent workforce operates so well together, because they all perfectly blend into your company culture. If you hire a temporary worker whose personality clashes with everyone else’s, hostility and discomfort are bound to ensue. No one wants to work in a combative environment — not even for a little while.
